Description

This build is used for gaming and video editing. It seems to be able to handle just about anything I throw at it. I may upgrade to an i7 for video rendering in the future.

Many of the parts and peripherals I purchased on sale. The PC came in under $1000 at the time it was built. (If you live near a Microcenter, look for open box and combo deals) The peripherals were all about half price during Cyber Monday.

Edit: This system was built in late 2012-early 2013.

Gotta love Micro Center! I recently got an i7-4770k for $199 from there because of a promo they were having.

Great job on the build. Like others have stated, you should add some more RAM if you're going to be doing a lot of editing.

Thanks, I almost missed it. Luckily I saw the price drop on this site.

Right here is what I would have gone with http://pcpartpicker.com/p/26IZ8 $20 more and better everything, except maybe a millisecond slower SSD.

It should be noted that I built this PC almost a year ago. I was just putting together a part list for a forum and decided to publish it to the site. If I were to build this system today I would probably use almost exactly the parts you suggested. Sorry, should have mentioned that in the description.

Ah, I see. I also have an Ivy bridge PC with a 3770k and 680. The good ol' days, eh?

black ram and a black heatsink would make this build look crazy cool.

Whoops! Sorry, I actually have the M30's. I guess I added the wrong pair. However, they are the exact same when it comes to the guts.

I really like them. Great smooth response, no over hyped low or high end frequencies. They're actually surprisingly comfortable and this pair has lasted me NINE years.

Honestly, I'll probably go for the m50's when these bite the dust, but I just haven't had to upgrade.
